WHAT HAVE OUR CUSTOMERS SAID ON TRIPADVISOR?

Learning about the Victorian poor of Edinburgh is so striking, things have changed, but have they? The rich vs. the poor is a classic struggle that continues till this day, unfortunately. Edinburgh Edinburgh Tours is a tour you can count on for historic accuracy and great info. Side stories help humanize the history, the people.
Compassionate History Tour - A history tour that makes you think.
Starycats - December 2019
My husband and I did this tour with Robert last night. It was RIVETING!! Robert's knowledge is extensive, and his manner is thoroughly engaging. The subject matter is hard, but we learned an enormous amount about this side of Edinburgh's history. Robert's preparation is obviously extensive and it shows .. I cannot recommend his tours highly enough. We would certainly love to come back and do Robert's other tours with him on another visit to Edinburgh.
Victorian Poverty Tour.
AllieG - September 2019
Robert managed to make a rather grim tale of poverty in Victorian Edinburgh into something -- well, maybe "enjoyable" isn't appropriate considering the topic --fascinating and relate- able. The amount of research he must have put into this "presentation" (I struggle to call it a "tour") must have been extraordinary because he knew details; quoted from researchers of the period; and had an enormous amount of empathy and insight into how people lived and somehow, against all odds, managed to survive.
Outstanding.

Another great guided tour with Robert this time covering Poverty in Edinburgh during Victorian times. Robert is a great guide he takes his time during the walk so everyone can go at their own pace. Very informative and a pleasure to spend two hours exploring Edinburg. As a lass from Edinburgh I learnt things I didn’t know about.
Victorian Old Edinburgh.
Jane B - September 2019
Me and my friend joined Robert for the Victorian Poverty tour which took place a month ago (apologies for the delay!). I have been living in Edinburgh for 6 years so far, but he showed us “hidden” places I have never seen before and told us stories I have never heard. Robert was very knowledgeable and managed to bring us back in time through facts and stories, which were told in very fascinating way, but also through many illustrations which were very helpful to enhance our imagination. I was shocked how difficult was the life of poorest in Victorian times.

Mirka B - June 2019
After enquiring about this tour Robert kindly arranged it to coincide with the dates we were visiting Edinburgh and all proceeds he received were donated to Street work charity. The fascinating tour gave us a real insight into the desperate poverty people lived in and was told with respect for those who suffered but was also peppered with some uplifting stories of those facing adversity, two hours packed with real history and knowledge and told with real passion, thank you Robert!
